Considering calling conventions arm-android and arm-linux are the same. 
And if arm-wince doesn't have any special differences to other arm 
targets like e.g. x86_64-win64 does in comparison to other x86_64 
targets then this should be solved together with arm-linux as well.
As I said: it's mostly CPU specific stuff. So if one target of the 
platform works the others should work as well as long as they use the 
same calling conventions.
